Sneak Peek: The Dexter Manley TV Show

This first look at Dexter Manley’s new TV show (via @DextersRushHour) doesn’t disappoint. A sampling of Dexter’s so-called “strategy” for Sunday night’s Redskins-Cowboys game:

— “They can knock those Cowgirls off the line of scrimmage.”
— “Mr. [Brandon] Banks, we need you to run at least two punt returns back.”
— “You watch [LaRon Landry], he takes a zero in on you, and he’s coming to knock your jock off.”
— “Clinton [Portis], show the world and the people of RFK, I mean FedEx Field, that you still have it.”
— “All you law enforcements, you let [people] scalp those tickets, because we need that place rocking.”
— “We need everybody participating, little kids, babies, pooping and everything you got to do. Bring your A game Sunday night.”
— “You must be willing to run over your grandmother, your mother, your sister, and your little sister, and all your other sisters out there. Either you got a lot of illegitimate kids, run over them. Run over dogs, cats, whatever it is you run over them to beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.”

In closing, I will always love you, Dexter.

Update: The site for Dexter’s show just launched, and it’s pretty crazy.

Bonus: As seen on the Bog, the most amazing Dexter Manley poster:

It’s Art Monk Football Camp in Zubaz!

Because Redskins artifacts dated 1982-92 bring me great joy, we’ve already posted the Art Monk Football Camp hat in mesh, but this Zubaz version takes it to a new level entire:


Beautiful, and it comes via Bog Man Dan, who spied it at Sunday’s tailgate and emails in lowercase shorthand:

25 year old eben altmann from rockville, older brother went to monk’s camp about 20 years ago, eben had monk sign everything skins he owned

Eben is it? What a Sublime nut, huh? Regardless, we thank him for sharing his priceless lid, and the accompanying t-shirt that I want real bad:

The Fifth-Greatest Redskins Hat Ever, As Worn By the Coolest Mr. Irrelevant Reader

We’re not necessarily ranking the awesomeness of these Redskins hats anymore so much as we are continuing a series. If you’d like to add to the fun, please send along the great Skins hat(s) of your own.

This one comes from a fellow going by the name of CamLwalk, who says, “Check out this bad boy. Worn it since 1979. Flattop corduroy!”


I love that he reads Mr. Irrelevant. Of course he does. Anyway, follow the jump for a closer look (of the hat, not the dude) …

The 3rd and 4th Greatest Skins Hats Ever

On the heels of the Hogs hat and Art Monk Football Camp comes a beauty, this mesh joint recalling my favorite game of all-time (via David Chalk):


And here’s yet another in mesh, this one sitting on fur and harking back to the first game I can remember (via The Mayor):


If you have something at home that tops these, please knock the dust off it, take some pics and send it my way. It needs to be shared.

It’s the Greatest Redskins Hat of All-Time

Considering there’s already a Burgundy & Gold Zubaz Super Bowl XXVI hat in our family, that headline is saying a lot, but this clearly takes the cake:


That right there is a Hogs mesh hat, purchased by my mother in-law from a street vendor outside RFK Stadium circa 1985. Hogs. Mesh. RFK. 1985.

Try not to get jealous that I married into this, and follow the jump for a profile and the little piggy tail on the back …

Lost Treasure Found: Chip Lohmiller And Pete Stoyanovich’s 1993 McDonald’s Ad

This “split the uprights” commercial for Mickey D’s is a continuation of Michael Jordan and Larry Bird’s crazy game of H-O-R-S-E, and MJ even makes a cameo here. I remember thinking it was awesome, and not strange at all that two kickers were center stage for a national commercial. Of course, I also don’t remember there being anything wrong with neg-burns.

(Fun Bunch-style high-fives to scruffylookinpt2 for digging this up, along with dozens of other vintage Redskins clips.)

Lost Treasure Found: Monk, Clark & Green’s 1991 Pizza Hut Commercial

This is a special piece of vintage, local advertising from my favorite time as a Redskins fan starring three of my all-time favorite Redskins. Art Monk is reliable as usual, Darrell Green is affable as ever and Gary Clark steals the show. But where the hell was Ricky Sanders?

(Traffic-cone shots of Crown Royal to The Mayor of FedEx Field for the tip.)

Lost Treasure Found: Jacoby and May’s 1984 Theater Vision TV Commercial

There’s no telling why I’m obsessed with 1980s Redskins this week, though it may have something to do with this year’s model losing by 45 on Sunday. Either way, third in the series that began with Darrell Green’s immortality and was continued by Dexter Manley’s infinite sadness is this long lost ad starring Hogs-turned-broadcasters Joe Jacoby and Mark May:

Despite being only six when this aired, it’s still familiar, perhaps due to friends who still imitate Jacoby’s lines to this day. Lingering speech problems aside, the real atrocity here are those gym shorts, revealing bits of Jacoby that should never see daylight.
